Monday's six-game NHL slate is loaded with top-tier scorers featuring a great matchup as Jason Robertson and the Dallas Stars face Nikita Kucherov and the Tampa Bay Lightning. We should expect lots of tight games with some great matchups out there, but expect some of the top scorers to shine through still. So, be sure to check in with our NHL DFS Tools, with the daily NHL projections, and our NHL lineup generator when building those lineups today to help you decide which players you should be targeting!

DFS Lineup Construction Thoughts

Based on the Vegas numbers we should expect a lot of low-scoring games today. There isn't a single team with an expected goal total of four or higher. With that said, there are four teams (St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Carolina, and Montreal) at the bottom of the league in goal allowed over the last two weeks, so don't be too surprised if there are some high-scoring games. I would look at Dallas in particular as a team to put some weight behind. The Stars have averaged four goals per game over the last two weeks while Tampa has really struggled. They gave up eight goals to the Stars on Saturday, and they have given up four goals or more in five of their last eight games.

Joey Daccord vs Montreal Canadiens

Alex Nedeljkovic vs Philadelphia Flyers

Favorite Goalies to Use for DFS Lineups

Alex Nedeljkovic, G, Pittsburgh Penguins

I was a little surprised to see that the Flyers have the most shots on goal per game over the last two weeks at 37.2 while scoring less than two goals per game. If this continues you should be able to get lots of value from Nedeljkovic today.

Scott Wedgewood, G, Dallas Stars

With Dallas blowing out Tampa Bay on Saturday I would look for the Lightning to come out fast and put a lot of shots on goal. Wedgewood has played great on the road this season, so if he can help get the Stars through the early game he should be in a good spot to get the win and make lots of saves doing it.

Logan Thompson, G, Vegas Golden Knights

Thompson has been very good at home this season. He has a 0.938 save percentage in his home games, and while he is facing a Blues team that has started to score, I think this should be a challenge that Thompson is up to. He is my choice for cash games today.

Recommended DFS Skaters

Highest Expected Goal Totals 

Vegas Golden Knights vs Jordan Binnington(3.9)

Seattle Kraken vs Sam Montembeault (3.6)

Pittsburgh Penguins vs Carter Hart (3.5)

Favorite Skaters to Use for DFS Lineups

Jack Eichel, C, Vegas Golden Knights

Coming into today's games Eichel has seven points in the last week. This is a good matchup against the Blues who are giving up 4.33 goals per game over the last two weeks. I wouldn't be afraid to pay up for Eichel today.

Jason Robertson, W, Dallas Stars

Robertson has points in five straight games, but a quarter of the way into the season his goals and his shots are way down from the last two years. Maybe today is the day when he will get back to shooting the puck more.

Oliver Bjorkstrand, W, Seattle Kraken

With Seattle facing Montreal today, there is a good opportunity for them to score some goals. Bjorkstrand has five shots or more in his last two games and has been one of Seattle's best players all season long.

Alex Pietrangelo, D, Vegas Golden Knights

Pietrangelo is always a player who can get multiple bonuses for you. He shoots and blocks shots, and he will see the majority of the powerplay time as well for Vegas. Tonight he should be in a good place to get points as well which is nice as well.
